This hotel is about an 8 minute walk from Union Square and is priced accordingly. Seems quite popular with young travellers because of the price. The room however was large and perfectly clean but basic. So if you are looking to save some dollars this hotel should be considered. It is heading into the dodgy area of San Francisco however...

This was the worst and unfortunately most expensive hotel that we stayed in during our recent road trip around California. We chose to stay here due to the free parking (rare in San Francisco!) but the area is so dodgy ad feels so unsafe that I would have gladly paid more the stay in a different part of town. We...

We stayed here for our first night on our roadtrip. Its located near to the Union Square, so you can leave your car in the parking lot of the motel and explore SF by walk. The beds were very large and comfortable, especially after a long flight. The guy and the lady at the front desk also gave us information... More

Would definitely stay at Motel 6 again. Service was lovely and were able to provide tips on travelling/staying in San Fransico. Rooms had two comfortable sized doubles beds. Bathroom was adequate with good shower pressure. Free wifi in rooms as well. It is pretty central about a 10 minute walk to the centre, where you can take the BART around... More

The hotel is just a few minutes walk from Union Square. We walked to the Pier 39 district every day, about a 40 min walk. The hotel itself is what you would expect from a budget chain. Clean rooms, (ours had a very noisy Air Con) and friendly staff. The best part is the free parking, rare in this city.... More

This hotel is in a very central location, close to Union Square and city centre. The rooms are nice and spacious. The Hotel offers free wifi and free morning coffee, which I enjoyed very much. All in all a pretty nice and cheap Hotel in central SF.

The hotel is central. Despite homeless people on the streets, nobody ever disturbed us and we felt pretty safe. The hotel is quite central in a walking distance from the Pier 39. There was no breakfast in the hotel, but there was a nice little place next to the hotel where we had a great breakfast. There was a free... More

Don't let the area scare you away! Two ladies traveling together - we were never bothered! Great location. We took the bus (very easy) to the wharfs and got back to our bus stop after dark. It's a 3 block walk from the Van Ness stop to the Motel 6 and we had no problems. There are good restaurants close... More

Motel itself was not bad. Careful attention, around the motel are very dangerous drug dealers. At night it is very dangerous to return to motel, view of syringes even on sidewalks. This motel is not included breakfast. bars nearby are not clean at all. bad area at all.
